Everyone has an opinion these days. But, the truth is, most opinions aren’t facts, no matter how much people believe them. In fact, you’ve probably heard your share of car preventative maintenance myths … we sure have. Let’s take a look at a few of them so you can have the information you need to make the best decisions about your vehicle’s care.

4 Common Car Preventative Maintenance Myths That Simply Aren’t True!

Myth #1: You should change your vehicle’s oil every 3,000 miles.

The truth: This is quite possibly one of the most common car preventative maintenance myths. While this may have been true in your grandparents’ day, oil change frequency is different for modern vehicles. That’s mostly because today’s motor oil has additives and lubricants inside it that help it last longer. For most vehicles that are less than 15 years old, oil changes can be done every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. If you’re not sure, check your owner’s manual or talk to your trusted mechanic.
